Korea's New Missile Has Unprecedented Range

Irune Rengel | 15 May, 2017, 21:22

North Korea's official Rodong Sinmun devoted half of its six-page Monday edition to coverage of the missile test, with vivid color photographs of the launch and jubilant leader Kim celebrating with military officers.

North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency called the missile a "new ground-to-ground medium long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12" that's "capable of carrying a large-size heavy nuclear warhead".

The Sunday launch of the Hwangson-12 medium-range ballistic missile was successful.

The Russian defense ministry said the missile landed several hundred kilometers away from the city of Vladivostok in Russia's Far East, but Putin said the missile "didn't present a threat" to his country.

It was not clear what type of ballistic missile was sacked. This shows that North Korea took elaborate technical steps to tone down the geopolitical impact of the missile launch.

Today's claim, if confirmed, would mark another big advance toward the North's goal of fielding a nuclear-tipped missile capable of reaching the USA mainland.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, blasted North Korea's latest missile test Sunday, saying it "is not the way to sit down" with President Donald Trump. None of the missiles that North Korea has test launched thus far are capable of flying that far.

The missile flew for about 30 minutes, travelling about 800km (500m) before landing in the Sea of Japan, according to Tokyo.

Two senior national security advisers to US President Donald Trump will meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in's top foreign policy adviser, Chung Eui-yong, in Seoul on Tuesday, to discuss a summit of the leaders and the North's missile test, a source with direct knowledge of the meeting said. And after years of furtive activity in North Korea, attempts to placate the Communist state seem to have only encouraged its unsafe leaders.

That suggests a range of 4,500 kilometers (2,800 miles) or more if flown for maximum distance, AFP cited analysts.

Just five days after South Korea elected a president who expressed a desire to reach out to North Korea, Pyongyang sent a challenge to its rival's new leader on Sunday by test-firing a ballistic missile. Experts say the missile was launched at its highest angle, and if it was sacked at a standard trajectory, it would be able to travel as far as 2,500 miles.

The U.S. military's Pacific Command said the type of missile that was sacked was "not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile".

Guam is home to Andersen Air Force Base, through which the US Air Force rotates heavy bombers including B-1s, B-2s and B-52s. During a 2016 test, the Musudan reached a height of 1,410 kilometres (880 miles).

North Korea now claims that it has successfully launched a ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear payload. But the country has never carried out test flights of those rockets' military versions. More recently, Russia and North Korea have considered a slew of economic deals, including an expansion of railway links between the two countries, a new ferry service that will cart people and cargo, and advanced training opportunities for North Korean engineers at Russian universities. Afterward, a spokesman told reporters that Moon remains "open to the possibility of dialogue with North Korea" but that it's only possible with a "change of attitude" in Pyongyang.

KCNA also claimed that the test launch verified "guidance and stabilisation systems" and the reliability of a new engine, as well as the warhead homing feature that allowed it to survive "under the worst re-entry situation" and detonate accurately. "The North Koreans duped Jimmy Carter - an emissary of Clinton - and the Clinton administration to subsidize the North Korean nuclear program in exchange for the counterfeit promise that North Korea would limit itself to civilian nuclear power".

Moon is widely expected to seek engagement with North Korea to improve long-strained ties, but Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs are limiting his leeway for reconciliatory policies.

The North has successfully launched long-range rockets twice to put objects into space, although many experts believed it was some years away from mastering the re-entry technology needed to ideal an ICBM. The Associated Press quoted David Wright, a physicist with the Union of Concerned Scientists as saying that the missile might have a range of 4,500km if fired at a normal angle.
